Interview with Dr. Mark van Staalduinen, Innovation Manager, TNO, Singapore and a Seconded Cybercrime Expert, INTERPOL.
Recorded at Cyber Security Asia 2019 #CSA2019, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, held 4-5 November 2019. Mark presented on Blockchain Technology: Detecting and Solving Cybercrime.
Mark provided a spotlight on compliance and how regulation continues to intensify as cryptocurrency transforms the way people transfer value and move money. While headlines often focus on the use of cryptocurrencies for criminal activities, like money laundering and ransomware, the reality is that cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, can be much friendlier to cops than they are to criminals when trying to trace the proceeds of crime or find stolen funds. In fact, blockchain technology can provide information and tracing capabilities not available with more traditional forms of payment like cash or even the traditional banking system. Utilizing these unique features inherent to blockchain technology, in particular immutable ledger, law enforcement and the blockchain industry have developed software analytic and investigative tools to trace funds and detect criminal activity that would otherwise be difficult to discern.
Mark’s main interest lie in the understanding of cybercrime innovation driven by the current pace of internet technologies, like blockchain and IoT. As founder of TNO’s Dark Web program, he conducts cyber threat research and delivers training together with INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore Besides his scientific profile, he has a strong focus on law enforcement. He is a seconded cybercrime expert to INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation in Singapore. He is innovation manager at TNO with focus on Dark Web, Blockchain Security and Cybercrime. He received his MSc in Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology (DUT) in 2003. Since 2012 full-time committed to internet-driven innovations in safety and security.
